    Description

    Cuvée des Caudalies from De Sousa is an impressive Blanc de Blancs champagne made from vines of over 50 years old.

    The vines have what are known as pivot roots, which after around 10 years reach a depth of 25 to 30 meters in the earth to extract mineral salts and trace elements from the chalky sub strata.

    When the roots go deep, the influence of the terroir is greater than that of the grape variety. The deeper the roots go the further they are from added fertilizers and the more nutrients they extract, thus producing higher quality grapes.

    This Blanc de Blancs, made exclusively from Chardonnay, is 100% matured in oak barrels of which 15% are new.

    Each year since 1995 50% of new wine has been added to the reserve wines.

    In this way the number of vintages found in the cuvee increase year on year, currently standing at 14 wines (1996 à 2009).

    Tasting

    By Patrick Borras

    Robe

    The De Sousa Cuvée des Caudalies Blanc de Blancs is a champagne of a lovely light yellow with green glimmers and daintily light bubbles.

    Nose

    The nose is elegant, complex and beautifully light with its fine delicate aromas, fruity and buttery all at once.

    Palate

    Vivid and imposing in the mouth with its marked fruit characters, it’s a champagne of elegance and distinction with a harmonious architecture.

    Service

    Cuvée des Caudalies Blanc de Blancs can be served as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to cold entrees. It is at its best at a temperature of between 9° and 10°C.
